Overlaying a building’s plan oblique drawing and floor plan, and then systematically deconstructing the resulting image based on the underlying square grid of the original building fragments and flattens the once three dimensional image into a field of almost entirely unidentifiable figures interlaced with specific moments that retain an aspect of three dimensionality. This deconstruction and manipulation of image allows for a flickering understanding of the drawing, oscillating between the colored figures and the figured white space as well as between the flattened picture plane and the perceived depth of the clandestine three dimensional drawing.
